Bored Wolves says:
The Stoneware Jug is a collection of poem-comics by Stefan Lorenzutti (words) and John Porcellino (pictures), in which American comix legend Porcellino (King-Cat, Thoreau at Walden) “pours” the adapted poems into his pen-and-ink panels, as if into a handmade vessel.
Each one-page comic is a seasonal diorama of sorts, preserving a moment in time unfolding in the interstices of time: between the chinks of a log cabin in the Polish Highlands, fissures in late-spring ice, and the gap between coziness and creeping concern on a brutally cold winter’s night.
In the end, The Stoneware Jug is a quest for comfort zones, suffused throughout with the aromatic promise of panettone.
